: Watched Maher last night. Tim Robbins looked chronically confused. Tucker Carlson said that spreading democracy is not cause for sending our soldiers into war. Robbins said Iraq now has a president who won’t shake hands with women. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones said she respects that Muslim choice. Maher and Carlson both said, “You’ve got to be kidding.”
It’s a damned Cirque du Soleil of politics. It’s the Blue Man Group of the blue states.
Maher said he doesn’t agree with Ward Churchill but then turned around and said, “Is the United States guilty of a passive aggressive violence against the world? Yes.”
At the end, Maher said they’ve been trying hard to get more conservatives in the audience so they don’t all hoot at the same lines from the panel. But he said it’s hard because conservatives don’t like him.
